Philly SHRM Webinar

During this one-hour webinar, we will provide an overview of the most recent developments in federal, state and local labor and employment law. We will discuss recent Supreme Court labor and employment decisions and provide a sneak peak of the labor and employment cases to look out for in the Court’s upcoming term. Also, now that medicinal marijuana dispensaries have begun operations in Pennsylvania, we will discuss employers’ compliance obligations under the Pennsylvania statute. Finally, we will provide an update on the effect of the #MeToo movement on employment laws and human resources practices.
